Case Report

Fluoroscopic-Assisted Olecranon Fracture Repair in Three Dogs

Figure 3

Radiographs of the left elbow of dog 1 obtained 5 years postoperatively. Craniocaudal (a) and mediolateral (b) radiographs show unchanged implants with modeling at the proximal margin of the String-of-Pearls plate. Moderate osteophyte production is present at the cranial margin of the humeroradial joint and the medial aspect of the humeroulnar joint and along the proximal margin of the anconeal process. Also note the mild sclerosis of the ulnar trochlear notch, with evidence of joint space narrowing. These findings are compatible with progressive degenerative joint disease.
